I just started in on a new bottle of Seagram's 7 Dark Honey a few hours ago and remembered that I haven't eaten. So being the responsible asshole that I am, and not drive impaired---
I decided that I had to order some damn pizza. I looked for the wallet and I remembered I had put it in the glove compartment...Well...the both the garage and car were on the other side
of the house. Fuck that...I was too lazy. I was hungry...and haven't been the grocery store in weeks.

So..into the freezer. I find frozen mussels, frozen scallops...and some bullshit microwaveable veggies. Fuck that veggie shit.

At any rate...this is what I came up with given what I had left on hand:

Mussels/Scallops in a bullshit Parmesan/garlic creamy butter sauce over angel hair pasta:

First, heat up stove, throw frozen mussels into pan with shitty white wine, garlic, salt, pepper....


Start thawing scallops in warm water. Continuing to boil wine/garlic sauce down--steam and heat is starting to open up the mussels.
Started angel-hair pasta boiling in salted water.


Removing mussels when done (covering with saran wrap in a bowl), reserving about 50% of the liquid. Add scallops and cook until firm


When liquid is reduced and scallops are firming up---I add all the cheese that I had left (maybe 1/4 a bag of shredded white American) and some dried Parmesan cheese like you'd put on spaghetti.
Then I threw in some heavy cream, butter, and fresh chopped garlic. Pulled meat from mussels and threw into cheesy-weird mixture.


Removed noodles from water and drained. Added some olive oil, butter, and oregano and tossed it. Added mussels/scallops/sauce over the noodles. Booze and nearest handgun included (I wasn't going to unlock a rifle for
a bullshit snack picture). Regardless of how it looks---it tasted pretty fucking good.


At any rate...now into third episode of Firefly, looking to move on to Season 5 of SoA.

You defrosted frozen seafood in standing warm water?

I hope you live...

That's a nice appetizer. Where is dinner?

0/10

Actually, it was cold water...that I had to dump twice. When it was done the third time, it was about room temperature. I should live, though.

Well I will give you a 9 based on the amount of alcohol gone from the bottle and the cooking skill you displayed!

I would be unable to even boil water!

Those look like roaches without legs.

defrost with running cold water and a colander

also, something with a delicate flavor like scallops shouldn't be covered with cheese, cream and wine sauce

I see someone might have a drinking problem if you just popped the cherry on that bottle tonight.
GET HELP!

Food looks good. Watching sons of Anarchy after season two, OTOH, is kinda gay.

As nasty as that is, I'm giving a solid 7/10 alone just for the fact you're still coherent and functionable, and haven't burned your place down after drinking that much.
